Yesterday we told you about a massive security flaw in Android devices. 99.7% of Android items had a hole where, if you were on an unsecured wireless network, anyone could hack in and get vital information out of your phone or tablet. Now Google says they’re on it! Google is rolling out a fix in the next few days that won’t require users to do any sort of special download or install, it will just get fixed…somehow. In the meantime, Android users are encouraged to stay away from open wi-fi networks. Matter of fact, that’s just becoming good policy across the board. Stay away from those networks. Bad things happen.
